Do We Have To Trust A Dog Than A Human Being?

Blind 2

Is dog trustworthy than man?:A guard dog leading the blind

Have you ever being a passenger in a train, bus or a tram, then another passenger comes in with his or dog? Did you notice the reactions and facial expressions of other passengers who don’t like animals? Action speaks louder than words. Some people hate animals to the extent that they develop hatred for animal lovers.

We have read it many times and sometimes finds it hard to believe or understand when people, even though have children but give everything they own or prepare their will for their pets. In New York, an accountant and pet owner left a fortune of around £I million to her dog to enjoy a happy life after she dies.

In Germany, a German Shepherd called Gunther became one of the world’s richest animals after his owner, a German countess, left the dog $145m (£95m) when she died. Many may call such people bad, wicked, pitiless, or people without compassion, the fact that they don’t care about the suffering of people.

The question is: Why is that many people are homeless, dying of hunger, yet certain rich people prefer their animals to inherit their wealth? When you go deep to find out the reason many give their wealth to their pets, you can find out that a lot have been hurt by other people, including their own family. People have lost confidence and faith in other people, because of  bitter experiences they find it hard to forget or forgive.

If you want to test how cunning, unfaithful and dishonest a man is, give him an inch, he will take a yard, or give him a yard, he will take a mile. Dogs are trained to serve the blind for the rest of his or her life, but man can’t. A dog can be with the blind every day without grumble, but man grumbles. Man has no patient to serve his fellow man, even to love his woman for the rest of his life. The reason there is so much separation and divorces worldwide, but a faithful dog never leaves the master.

Life is full of many challenges, thus; the happiness of many people depend on their pets. Instead of hating someone because you hate dogs or cats, cultivate love in your heart, for both the animal and the owner, that will make you appreciate and see the beauty of every living creature on earth, because they all have breath like a normal person.

Do We Have To Share The Same Plate With Our Pets?

Plate 1

Every animal has life like a human being. The reason animal lovers like their pets, whether dogs or cats. There are animal lovers in Africa too, but unlike Europe or America, Africans don’t share bed or sofa, with a dog or cat. The task of an African dog is to be outside to protect his master’s property against thieves.

In Europe, many Africans dating or married to White women, aren’t finding life easy with their partners over the way they socialize with their pets and also behind the dining table. The difference of culture clash is often like a burden to an African. It’s clear an animal has feelings because it’s a living creature. It is therefore a crime when one treats animals bad or cruel, above all we shouldn’t forget that a dog is man’s best friend.

However; is it right for a dog and human being to use the same plate? You can’t love a White woman, without loving her pet. Once you don’t like her pet, she assumes you don’t love her, but frankly speaking, it would be very difficult for an African to use the same plate used to serve a dog’s food.

Plate 2

Sleeping with dog, act of abomination in Africa, even though very common in Europe and America.

Similar problem Kwame was facing when he fell in love with this young attractive beautiful dog lover. Anytime after eating, she sets the dirty plates on the floor for her dog to lick the plates clean, before putting them in the dish washing machine. Kwame thought that’s not right and couldn’t hold it any longer so he voiced out.

The woman wasn’t happy when he spoke against it. “Well it doesn’t matter since the plates go into the dish washing machine.” She said. There is a difference between hating an animal and the dislike of sharing the same plate with an animal, but such cases are often judged otherwise. It was hard to accept Kwame’s explanation because of her love for her dog.

“Yes, I understand. I love you and I love Twilight (the dog) too, but in Africa, this is never done whether the plate goes inside washing machine or not, human beings can’t eat in the same plate a dog licks,” said Kwame. It’s unfortunate that many people aren’t ready to change, instead want others to love or follow whatever they do or love.

Just nine months after the happy union, the row over a human being sharing the same plate with a dog split the couple apart and both went on separate ways. I love dogs and I’ve owned one before called Allswell, but we didn’t share the same plate or bed. No matter how I love my wife or girlfriend, I will not share the same plate with our pet, because a dog is an animal and I’m a human being.

My Happy 21st Wedding Anniversary

 

Wedding anniversary

Marriage is a journey of commitment and sharing of responsibilities

January 1,  2015, marked 21st of our wedding anniversary. On that day, I promised to go forward without looking back, prepared to face the rigors of marriage and settle as a responsible man. Before then finding or choosing the right woman to be my future partner was like a nightmare, taking into consideration the number of people getting the divorce every day after tying the knot.

Yes! It’s very common to see hundreds of couples at wedding ceremonies, particularly on Sundays, making vows and promises to love each other, bringing an entire room to tears. After the wedding or traditional marriage, starts a big celebration together with  family and friends, with the couple full of hopes and dreams, but like the fading sun, many marriages fail to last. Marriages are now characterized by many problems to the extent that many fear of marrying.

As a matter of fact, marriage is a journey not only full of happiness but pain, tragedies, misery, sadness and uncertainty. Even though there are hundreds of articles online and books on how to be the successful couple to enjoy a happy marriage, many marriages end up in separation or divorce. The question is: Why some marriages last forever and others disintegrate?

Seeing my wife gives me happiness

Francisca Savage

There are many reasons leading to the break-up of marriages, but most reasons are not spending enough time together, cheating, allowing bitterness and resentment to overrule the heart, hard to forgive, financial issues and if the man or woman doesn’t know how to cook. Joining together and making vows are very easy but results of some bitter separations and divorces could be disastrous.

Some break-up of marriages has led partners to mental institutions and others after a long time still find it difficult to come to terms with what had happened to them. If children are involved some are badly affected depending how old they are. It is unfortunate that many couples do not recognize the Holy Bible as one of the best books that could guide marriage to happiness. Gen 49:4, Mal 2:14, Matt 23:30, Deut 24:5, Mark 12:23 etc, all speak about marriages.

When I got married I realized that wealth doesn’t guarantee a happy marriage, but faithfulness, respect, fulfilling your commitments and equally sharing responsibilities. I have enjoyed a happy marriage over two decades, knowing that there is more happiness ahead of me, because I have a good wife, who loves and respects me, while I give back the same love and respect to her.

On many occasions when my wife is busy at work and I’m at home, I usually ask her what she would like me to cook. By the time she returns food is ready for her and the children. Taking such responsibility strengthens marriage. I have heard many times men saying, “I’m not stupid to let my woman knows how much I earn.” That’s a big mistake, one of the strongest foundations of marriage is transparency.

When you are a married man, don’t hide anything from your wife. Your wife is the one who can manage your finances very well if there are trust and mutual understanding. Many times, I forget that I have even given her money to keep for me until she reminds me. ‘A woman is like a beautiful flower in the middle of garden and the man is the fence around her.’ Give your wife the respect, love and protection she needs and surely you will also be a happy man.

Marriage means happiness not a burden
